Two New Grants

My colleagues and I are very fortunate to have been awarded two new grants this year, one from NASA and one from NSF. The NASA project will investigate the relationships between recent trends in yields, cropland extent, and climate sensitivity in Zambia’s maize growing sector, while the NSF will fund a larger project by Princeton and Indiana University to study how hydrological and agricultural forecasts can improve short-term farm and water management. See Kelly Caylor’s site for more details.
